Enticing aromas of barbecued beef complemented by
savoury flavours of dark chocolate and coffee, rich and

Producer Note
Ktima Gerovassiliou is the brainchild of Evangelos Gerovassiliou. He initiated the revival
of the family vineyard by planting the nearly extinct Malagousia in 1981. This state-ofthe-art winery is now surrounded by 80 hectares of meticulously well cared vineyards on
the slopes of Epanomi. Ktima Gerovassiliou guarantees consistent, high quality wines of
international acclaim every year and his Malagousia remains the benchmark to this
day.
Vintage
2019 was an excellent vintage, being cited as perhaps one of the best of the past 20
years. Winter was cold, with snow, but without extremely low temperatures. Bud-break
started during the second half of March with flowering mid-May. May and June saw
average temperatures and some rain showers; however on 10th July, heavy rains fell
which replenished soil water reserves. From mid-July to the end of the harvest, daytime
temperatures were consistently 30 to 32°C falling to 19 to 20°C at night. The wines are
full-bodied, with excellent acidity and are rich in varietal aromas.
Vineyard
At Ktima Gerovassiliou, the single, private vineyard is cultivated with great care and
enthusiasm, which leads to constant research and experimentation with Greek and
international varieties. New technological advances blend well with tradition
throughout the vine growing and vinification processes to produce high quality wines
that carry all the distinct characteristics of the terroir of Epanomi. The climate is
Mediterranean with mild winters and hot summers, tempered by sea breezes. The
vineyard is surrounded on three sides by the sea, which is three kilometres away, while
its west side faces the Thermaic Gulf, Mount Olympus and the beaches of Pieria. The
vines are grown in soils which are mainly sandy with a few clayey substrates and
calcareous rocks. It is rich in marine fossils, as the surrounding hilly area was formed by
sea deposits.
Winemaking
The three varieties Syrah, Limnio (pronounced LIM-neeo) and Merlot were vinified
according to the classic red fermentation methods. The wine was then aged in French
oak barrels for approximately 12 months and was bottled without any fining or filtration.
Tasting Note
Concentrated yet elegant, the Estate Red offers a pronounced bouquet of black fruits,
ripe plum and wild cherry, complemented by a hint of spice. On the palate gentle
tannins are enhanced by great fruit intensity. It is round and harmonious with a long,
spicy and persistent finish.
